For the second half of the semester, we’re experimenting with another tweak in the study room usage policy. You still check them out for 3 hour periods at the Circulation Desk and leave your Bryant ID as collateral, but now all the rooms are being kept locked, so after you check out the room, someone will need to open it up for you.
We found that even with the check out policy in place, people were still “jumping the queue” and taking rooms without signing them out first, leading to a number of confusing situations on busier nights. So we figured we’d give this a shot to see if this helps lessen these sorts of problems. It’s a little extra work for us, but if it works, it’ll be worth it. And the exercise is nice.
Any thoughts, suggestions, or advice in regards to this change? Be sure to let us know, either here on the blog, over the phone (x6125), or in an email.
